    i encountered my first case of torpedo grass infestacion. some folks have suggested "prosecutor" others "drive 75". has anyone had any success with either of these products.

    First we need to know which type of grass you have. If you have bermuda, you can use Drive 75. Pick up at Lesco. If you have St. Aug, Centipede, or Zoysia, you will probably either have to dig it up (which is a chore since its taproot can go very deep) or wipe it with Prosecutor (or other glyphosate based non-selective herbicide). Using either chemical, it may take multiple apps to kill the stuff. What a nasty weed!
